Sometimes I feel like all I ever do is learn. I am not even at University yet! It has literally been months since my ears have heard the word, “homework,” yet in those months I have gained knowledge in humbling abundance. The most invaluable lesson of all has been the one about thankfulness: shutting down even the smallest of complaints. Complaining tears the world apart, and it rips the wings off our souls.
Wherever you are, whatever you are doing. That’s it. For now. Make the most of it. Look away from the could-have-been-s and the “if-onlys,” followed by deep sighs. Get in the habit of thinking about the good and watch as, consequently, the bad takes flight.
For no homework!
For gentle correction,
For time to breath, to think, to create, to meditate.
For projects backed by deep purpose,
For old friends who remember,
For challenge and the purpose it gives me.
For people who get it,
For the challenge of being thankful for loose ends in life.
“…I will let the souls whom you hunt go free, the souls like birds.”~Ezekiel 13:20b
